He is a very good, honest, and helpful person with a wealth of knowledge.
Founder of a company Bob Metcalfe advised
The experience and insight that Dr. Metcalfe brings to the students of The University of Texas at Austin is obvious. The extra-effort and approachability he affords us is perhaps more noteworthy. Known to his students as "Bob," he and his trademark tennis shoes are a ubiquitous presence around campus, affording us a constant source of straightforward and honest feedback that never fails to inspire and produce the best in us, no matter how critical his words may be at times. His partnership with Josh Baer is one of UT's greatest assets, and his efforts to evangelize and organize student entrepreneurship on our campus is a model that any university aiming to be a great university should follow. Bob doesn't need UT nearly so much as UT needs Bob. We are all capable of more by virtue of the truth, energy and friendship that he and Josh Baer have brought to The Forty Acres.
